From Riverdale Iris Gardens catalog for 1973: “Light blue with a deep blue spot in the falls. White lines below the pale blue beard.”
(Lovilia X unknown pumila (prob. Blue Capers)).

Note: All three current pictures are from the same plant, different years. Notice the older pictures show a deeper blue infusion,and the most recent one is faded looking. This was not due to the camera. I noted it myself when I took these pictures,that suddenly Blue Secret wasn’t that ‘blue’ anymore, The bed it grows in is in bad need of some reconditioning,its been depleted of nutrients. Maybe that is the reason.
